Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk and cream; stir to combine.

  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface, and pat into a 6 1/2-inch round (about 1 inch high). Using a lightly floured 2 1/2-inch cutter, cut out rounds. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spacing about 1 inch apart. Gather scraps, reshape, and cut out. Brush tops with buttermilk. Bake until tops are golden, 22 to 24 minutes. Transfer biscuits to a wire rack, and cool.

I just made these at 12:30 am on a weekday and I have to be at work at 7 a.m. I made the right decision to stay up late and try this recipe. Absolutely love it! I didn't have buttermilk so I used yoghurt instead; they still came out fluffy and really really tasty.

these biscuits are excellent - short, easy, uses less baking soda than most buttermilk biscuits, plus oven temperature is lower so they brown nicely.

Delicious! My family loved them! I've tried many biscuit recipes & the dough was too wet. These were perfect & baked up into light, tender biscuits.

When friends come over they always ask for the Martha Stewart biscuits. They just love this easy to make biscuits. They love it so much that I made it on a family vacation in Sedonna, Arizona. I needed to add more buttermilk, it wasn't the same but we still enjoyed it with crunchy peanut butter.

Would this recipe for biscuits need any adjustment for high altitudes? After moving to Montana, biscuits have been failures! Very disappointing.
